$29 million seniors development to JRPP
The Hunter and Central Coast Joint Regional Planning Panel will meet next week to determine a development application for a 99-dwelling seniors living precinct within Rutherford’s Heritage Parc estate.
The $29.9 million McCloy Group development is slated for vacant land between Grand Parade and the train line. Along with the single-storey dwellings the precinct is set to contain a community centre, swimming pool, bowling green and caravan parking area.
Additionally, a community bus will operate between the precinct, Rutherford shops and Maitland CBD in order to satisfy state planning principles that require access to travel paths to services and facilities.
There are currently no public transport options available.
Maitland City Council has indicated its support for the development, however, due its value, cannot be the determining authority.
If approved it will be the second seniors living precinct in the estate, after Council approved an 80-dwelling development off Discovery Way last year. It is currently under construction.
